The male member of She and Him reunites with the director of 'Chinese Translation' music video to create the animated visuals.

M. Ward is taking time off from caroling with in to make a solo album "A Wasteland Companion". He has released his lead single "The First Time I Ran Away", and dropped an animated music video for it.

The clip is directed by Joel Trussell, the same guy who once helped Ward create his "Chinese Translation" clip. This newly-debuted video follows the three-part story of a young folk as he travels away from home and joins an old loner in a shelter somewhere near a river.

Talking about his new album, Ward said, "Between now and when I made 'Hold Time' there has been a lot of traveling, which requires a lot of reckoning with what to leave behind and what to carry - material and otherwise - and thinking about what I want versus what I need, creatively and otherwise. I wanted to get a reflection of that on the album."

"A Wasteland Companion" is slated to be released in the United States on April 10.
